The Rainbow.
London, Methuen 1915. - First edition; 8vo; original cloth boards, with gilt titles to spine. In November 1915, The Rainbow was seized by the police and Methuen, prosecuted for obscenity and forced to withdraw the book. Lawrence had believed that the War would end in 1915 and that the appearance of the novel, with its glimmerings of hope, would be timely. But as he stated "I set my rainbow in the sky too soon, before, instead of after, the deluge." Fine, with some very mild foxing to the fore edge. A lovely copy.
